Software Automates Generation of Flowcharts
FlowBreeze 1.0 from BreezeTree Software is a flowcharting tool that adds to Microsoft Excel. The software program allows users of Microsoft Office drawing tools to automate the generation of flowcharts. FlowBreeze 1.0 generates a flowchart shape based on the content of text and a set of rules customizable by the user.
Users can identify keywords that, when entered, cause FlowBreeze 1.0 to create that shape. Users also can force an entry to generate a specific shape type by using a prefix in their entry. FlowBreeze 1.0 generates flow line connectors between shapes and allows users to preformat the flowchart shape colors, font, text alignment and line styles.

Carton Clamp Adjusts Force To Reduce Damage During Load Handling
Brudi Bolzoni Auramo’s ETX-G3S intelligent carton clamp has been designed for industries in which variations in clamping pressure can produce significant loss claims. This helps reduce product damage during load handling.
The ETX-G3S uses a microprocessor controlled system to automatically adjust clamping force. The parameters are based on product and load guidelines predetermined by the end user.
Load configuration data is collected on a real-time basis through three sensor sets. Using the data, the ETX-G3S control unit directs the proportional valve to adjust the hydraulic pressure in the clamping cylinder to fit the load.

ASI DataMyte Updates Data Collector
ASI DataMyte has announced an updated version of the model 501 handheld data collector. This version of the 501 includes allowance for characteristic names with up to 50 characters, validation checking for vehicle identification numbers and improved torque timing performance.
The 501 increases the speed with which torque measurements are captured. It also is able to capture up to seven peak torque measurements within one second. This facilitates situations in which operators could take readings faster than data collectors could respond.

Nylok’s Nyseal Eliminates Leak Paths at Pressures up to 500 PSI
The Nyseal from Nylok creates a sealing element at pressures up to 500 pounds per square inch (psi). The green, preapplied coating is fused on the bearing surface of the fasteners, eliminating the leak path. As the screw is seated to its final position against the mating part, the Nyseal element compresses and fills the void under the bearing surface of the head and countersink or bore.
Fasteners treated with Nyseal are reusable and work in temperatures up to 150° F. They are resistant to chemicals like alcohol, gasoline, oil, kerosene, diesel fuel and hydraulic fluids.
